General Subject Update

It’s been over a year since my last post. Gee, that sure is surprising, isn’t it? Not like I’m well known for having big periods of inactivity or anything.

Well, here I am again, mainly to talk about stuff in general and this blog’s future.

First and foremost, I have started another blog that can be found here. There’s nothing on it yet, but it will serve the purpose of being a dumping ground for anything not related to roleplaying games or reviews. A random stream of conscience post about something? There, not here. A writing project not related to roleplaying games? There, not here. Etc., etc. I already have one dumb little thing planned for that blog already, and I will eventually begin moving posts from here to there if they don’t apply here.

Second, the Pok√©mon Verdance and Wasteland project’s status: currently on indefinite hiatus due to matters outside of my control. If a post comes, it will come like a ship in the night rather than at any expected time. It will also come at my other blog.

Third, reviews: they will still exist when I feel like it. Don’t worry about me never returning ever or anything, I promise.

And then there’s the fourth matter…fourth and last, but not least. This is the matter of actual roleplaying game writing content. Most of you reading this have probably known what I’m going to be writing here for months now, but in case you haven’t, I have started to change my system of choice from d20 Modern to GURPS. Long story short is that there was some soul-searching, system seeking, and lots of questions asked to myself, and that was the end result. I won’t be attempting to provide any time schedules or updates here, and will instead just be giving finalized links of collected PDFs.

UPDATE, December 2016: A year later, and I’m fairly sure it’s even more obvious that this blog has become more or less just an archive. I’m going to keep it up for posterity, but it’s very unlikely you’ll be seeing anything more coming through this pipe. Anything not roleplaying game-related and creative is likely to go through the above linked blog, while anything roleplaying game-related will now be on a separate GURPS-centric blog I have now created.

San Antonio Zoo Photos 4

Alright, folks. This here is the last, but not the least, of the photos from my trip to the San Antonio Zoo. I’m sad that I can’t show photos of some of the less photogenic specimens such as the secretary bird, aardvark, and aardwolf, I’m definitely going to be heading back to this zoo in the future once their African forest exhibit renovations are done (and most likely during the fall next time, in order to avoid the “predator fatigue” that was so common in the carnivorans this time).

San Antonio Zoo Photos 3

More San Antonio Zoo photographs for your viewing, this time from the aviary to the wetlands exhibits. Apologies for the prevalence of mesh in these exhibits, but I tried my best to get decent photographs in spite of them. Read the rest of this entry »

San Antonio Zoo Photos 1

Yesterday, my vacation took me to the San Antonio Zoo and Aquarium, by far the most amazing zoo I’ve been to in my travels. Now, I know that San Antonio is the seventh-largest city in the United States, but I had not expected how mind-blowingly amazing this zoo was going to be, and I will most assuredly be giving it an Animal Attractions spotlight in the future (after I finish up a backlog on that subject). For now, though, enjoy some images of the awesomeness of the earlier parts of the zoo, its main aquarium, and the Amazonia exhibits, with a photo post entirely dedicated to the zoo’s reptile house coming next.

Photo Post: Abandoned in Louisiana

Greetings all. You know those various projects I’ve ended up starting but not finishing? Yeah…

It turns out that I’m not really good at obligations, especially with my grandmother’s health continuing in a downward spiral from lung cancer to radiation-caused pneumonia-like illness and further. Who would have thought? So yeah, don’t expect me to post any particular thing any particular time, I’ll most likely do as I wish, and maybe this time I’ve learned my lesson on stating I will work on a particular thing for this blog. Still, I do have at least one thing planned out, but I shan’t set a date for it lest I fail to hit that date again.

Anyway, since it’s been so long since my last post, I figured I’d give you at least a little something. As such, here are some photos of aged structures, abandoned locations, and general roadside oddities from my state of Louisiana. Enjoy. Click on the images for a better full-view look.

Rappy Reads Like Lambs to the Slaughter: Chapter 2-Those Darn Occult Humanists

This is a fairly short and repetitive chapter, but it has enough of the eye-burningly stupid to have its own post. Welcome to chapter 2 of Like Lambs to the Slaughter, provocatively entitled “The Humanist Conspiracy”. Yes, because Read the rest of this entry »
